Gabrielle Gifford's neurosurgeon says that the Arizona congresswoman could run for re-election.
Peter Rhee, the doctor who operated on Giffords' brain after she was shot in January, told the NBC affiliate KVOA Tuesday that Giffords' mental faculties had fully recovered.
""There's no real reason she wouldn't be able to hold office," Rhee said. "It's not about her capabilities. It's purely [a decision] that is personal and what her desires are. I'll support her in whichever way she goes."
